  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

    I'm nowhere near York, but I want an olive front for a shoebox case (just plain, no knobs/switches).

    On a slightly different track, I'm looking for the black fascias that were used on chrome bumper kit.

    I'm after the smaller shoe box type with just the power switch hole - like used on a chrome bumper hi-cap. I want two of them.

    I seem to recall a while back on this site, somebody had some / was able to make some / or know of a suitable semi/matt plastic material that could be used to make some up.

    I'll look forward to hearing any comments
    Kind Regards
    Richard

    Les has the plastic and it looks really close to the anodized faces NAim used.

    Similar here. I'm looking for olive fronts for a couple of DIY projects using cases I bought from Les W.

    happy to oblige.

    i am working on my artcam skills at the moment but am getting more proficient.

    i find that i am best with autocad and then converting the dxf at the moment.


    I have some paint and some acrylic offcuts and will post pictures of some engraving as an example.

    My aim is to reproduce some olive fronts for older naim amps.

    do people want the led backlight?

    do you want it to take newer knobs?

    I tried a few different colours but think the last one is close enough.

    I'll engrave some and let you see the finished article.

    Anyone want to come up with a starfish logo?

    Hi David.

    I have a damaged (cracked near power switch cutout) full size olive fascia for 250/135 that you could use for a colour match.

    Let me know via PM and I could post it up to you.

    Dave.

    the issue at hand is one of design.

    are people looking for a starfish facia the looks like an olive 72 facia from a distance but has a naim logo styled 'SF'?

    if anyone wants to commit some designs to CAD and forward them to my email address I can cnc pretty much what you want.

    I spent some time last night measuring a naim 42 front panel and the dwg is :

    http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22051073/naim front panel.DWG

    please amend and add graphics/text to your hearts delight and if you want any other sizes i am sure i can source materials to suit.

    I could generate the required font and text - I could also cut out and etch the front panels too (though the original Naim ones are not etched).

    This was the kind of thing I was thinking.

    i have updated the files in the above link

    please feel free to adjust accordingly and any feedback would be appreciated.

    obviously the graphics would be solid filled.
